Fort Lauderdale Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Representing Florida Residents Injured by Pharmaceutical Drugs
When a doctor gives us a prescription drug, we trust that it will be safe for use, that the potential side effects are all listed, and that nothing unexpected will happen. We purchase over-the-counter (OTC) medications under the same pretenses.
Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies and corporations have been found guilty of masking the potential health and safety risks of such drugs, often without the knowledge of the medical community. This puts dangerous drugs in the hands of unsuspecting patients and has caused serious injury to many people in Fort Lauderdale and throughout the state.
If a dangerous drug has caused you or a loved one injury, such as blood clots or stroke, you may be eligible for financial compensation. More than that, you could hold the negligent pharmaceutical company responsible for harming you and your family in the first place.

How Do Dangerous Drugs Make It to Market?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) requires that all new drugs undergo a lengthy development and approval process to ensure that they are safe for patient use.
However, many manufacturers have been found guilty of falsifying information to the CDER to get their drugs out to market faster. Sadly, these manufacturers care more about making money than patient safety. This trend continues to this day.
Common Types of Drug Defects & Injuries
There are many different defects that may be at the heart of a dangerous drug lawsuit:
- Contamination during manufacturing
- Using the incorrect ingredients
- Bottling and labeling errors
- Failing to warn of side effects
- Including inaccurate or inadequate instructions for use
- Cutting corners during manufacturing, testing, etc.
Any number of these defects, or something else, could lead to allergic reactions, birth defects, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks and damage, pulmonary dysfunction, and death, among other serious injuries and conditions.
Examples of Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs
There is no limit to which drugs may be dangerous and lead to injury. A few common examples include:
This list is nowhere near exhaustive. Everyone is different; for example, a drug that is safe and effective for one person may cause another to suffer a severe allergic reaction. If you or a loved one has been injured after taking a prescription or OTC drug not listed above, legal recourse is likely still available.
